May Sports Roundup

Summer might not be here just yet, but summer spirit is on its way, which means that the atmosphere at sporting events is only set to get better. Book yourself tickets to one of the big events coming up, and you can guarantee you’ll get caught up in the hype. Whether you’re an avid fan of a particular team or sport, or you’re someone who just occasionally goes along for the ride, here are some of the sporting events in May that you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to be a part of:

FA Cup Final

On 11th May, Wembley Stadium is the only place to be. If you’re a Wigan fan, this is a historic event, as your team will be playing in their first ever FA Cup Final. Tickets are a little difficult to come by, but if you’re willing to queue at a ticket office, or fight your way through the online crowds, there are still some available, and the match promises to be worth it. Stay at our Wembley hotel and you’ll be right in the thick of the action. Why not make the most of the visit, and venture into London for a bit of sightseeing as well? The brilliant shows on the West End are only short tube ride away, and there’s no place like the capital for soaking up a bit of culture.

Aviva Premiership Rugby Game

Twickenham is the largest stadium in the world devoted solely to the sport of rugby union, and if you haven’t been before, you couldn’t pick a better day than 25th May for a visit. The Aviva Premiership Rugby Final has sold out for the last five years, so be on the look out for tickets early. But if you can’t wait until then, there are some great matches lined up early on in the competition, so why not go and watch Exeter Chiefs play Gloucester Rugby at Sandy Park on 4th May? A room at our Exeter hotel will set you up nicely for a rugby mad mini break.

The Cartier Queen’s Polo

If you’re looking for a sporting event with a little more class, then you couldn’t do better than one of the matches during the Cartier Queen’s Cup at Guards Polo Club. If you know anything about polo, you know that this is one of the highlights of the season, and if you don’t, then one of these events makes the perfect introduction to the sport. Book your room at our Staines hotel, and you’ll be within easy reach of the club. Just don’t forget to pack your finest attire, and your credit card, to make sure you blend in with the glamorous crowd.

Women’s UEFA Cup Final

On 23rd May, Lyon will face Wolfsburg at Stamford Bridge in the Women’s UEFA Cup Final. Women’s football might not get the same media attention as men’s, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting, and this game promises to be an exhilarating evening match up. Besides, when tickets are just £5 or £10, who could say no? Book a room at our Fulham hotel, and you’ll be in prime position to show the kids or your disbelieving friends that it’s not only boys who know how to kick a football.
